Bali Cultural Experience Tours – Suitable for all ages

If you drive approx 1 hour north from Kuta, you may find the district of Bangli if you know where your going, if you ask people that know the area they will tell you it’s like Ubud 20 years ago – and if you look at our video and photo’s above you will agree – It is quite simply stunning and untouched, locals still carry out their daily traditions that date back well before the Portuguese and Dutch discovered Indonesia.

We have set up this tour in collaboration with local government, Balinese heritage council, local farmers and villages of Susut, and Bali Rural Commune. Proceeds from this tour go back into the local community to preserve the rich culture and traditions of the region. Quite simply you will not find a tour or a place like this, it is the kind of thing you imagine seeing on Nat Geo Channel.

Balinese Purification Blessing: Bali is often referred to as the island of “holy water” because of the countless number of sacred springs on Bali and because holy water is the key element in their purification ceremonies. Water represents flow of energy (also known as prana or chi), connected to emotion and intuition.

Balinese participate in water blessings regularly called, Melukat, and believe that these rituals assist in cleansing our bodies on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Sitting in meditation in one of our Sacred Spaces, a temple priest prepares the holy water in a vase with flowers and incense while chanting mantras in ancient Sanskrit. Following the mantras, you are invited to receive a holy water cleansing as this blessed water is poured gradually over your head and body giving a full sensation of having a ‘holy shower’.
